If I upload a video to youtube directly from my camera, would it make a difference in my upload time?

Asked by Dutchess_III (44378points) January 11th, 2015

I transferred the video to my computer from my camera first, and I am now uploading it to youtube via the file I have on the computer. It’s been 3 hours and it’s 51% loaded. Sigh.

Would it make a difference if I took it directly off my camera instead?

The answer is “No,” btw. After the video uploaded, about 4 hours, I tried it. It was at the same speed.

How large is the video? Maybe it’s because the video is too big, or because your connection is poor.

It’s my internet speed. I know this. It’s video I take with my whoop to doo Canon Rebel. The resolution is high and there is no way to change that.
Didn’t have this problem with my lower end cameras.

Oh yeah. I’ve seen you upload the video successfully anyway :p

I would run it through Handbrake before uploading. I just did a test file from my camera. I took a one minute video.

188.7 MB from the camera.
54.2 MB after a quick run through Handbrake.


The quality is good. I can’t tell the difference between the two. And it is kinda irrelevant since youtube is going to convert it to mp4 anyway you might as well run it through handbrake on you computer first to save the painfully slow upload.
